Montana Extended Unemployment

As the economy fails to add enough jobs for the unemployed month after month, it can be hard to find employment to replace the job you lost. The current economic situation is worse than it has been in decades, and even the very dedicated are having difficulties in getting another job. Montana unemployment insurance is helpful in replacing a portion of your income while you continue to look for work, but at some point it runs out, and you may still not have a new job. Without a steady paycheck, it can be a struggle to keep a sense of financial stability, which can lead to stress that could affect your emotional well-being and hinder you in your job search. If you've been long term unemployed, you may be eligible for Montana long term unemployment benefits. You may also qualify for extended benefits even if you have found part-time work, but want full-time work.

Montana extended unemployment compensation is for those who have exhausted their regular unemployment benefits and are still unable to find work. Unlike regular unemployment benefits, extended unemployment benefits are paid for by the federal government, so they get to make the rules governing who is and isn't eligible for extended unemployment benefits.

 The rules for Montana extended unemployment eligibility frequently change due to legislation, the current state of the economy, and fluctuations in the local unemployment rate, so the best thing to do is to contact the Montana Unemployment Insurance Division. They will be able to assist you in determining your eligibility for extended unemployment benefits and provide you with the most updated information, as well as answer any other questions you may have. You can call them at (406) 444-3783 or email them at tocoonradt@mt.gov. You can also ask an Unemployment Insurance Customer Service Representative questions online as well.

If you are reaching the end of your regular Montana unemployment benefits and don't feel as though you will receive a job offer in the near future, you should contact the Montana Unemployment Insurance Division as soon as possible regarding your eligibility for extended benefits. This will help ensure that there isn't a delay between your regular benefits and your extended benefits, should you qualify for them.
